Videos, Videos, Videos
I can’t stress enough how wonderful YouTube is. There are literally thousands of YouTube channels that provide awesome fitness videos for free. If you’re not sure how to create a workout for yourself that works, I strongly urge you to take advantage of this useful resource.
You can find workout videos for almost every style imaginable: yoga, HIIT, aerobics, kickboxing, weight lifting, dancing, videos for beginners, experts, workouts for pregnancy, the elderly, the disabled, and everything in between. With so much content, it may take some time to find the videos that work for you, but I promise it’s worth it once you do.
For the first half of lockdown, I exercised exclusively by following along with workout videos. It took some searching, but I eventually found a solid rotation of around 5 or 6 different videos and cycled through them throughout the week. Sometimes I would do the same one video all week, other times I would do a different video every day. It was all dependent on how I felt that day. Always remember that you are in complete control of your routine.
Following along with workout videos is great because they take all the guesswork out of it. They provide you with the moves, the guidance, the timing, the motivation and promises of results. But what if you’re ready to level up?
